FAQ

Q: How is Minwax® Wood Putty® different from Minwax® High Performance Wood Filler?

Unlike Minwax® High Performance Wood Filler, Minwax® Wood Putty® is a non-hardening putty designed to cosmetically fill nail holes, joints and other minor surface imperfections.  Additionally, Minwax® Wood Putty® is color-matched to the Minwax® Wood Finish™ stain line.  Minwax® High Performance Wood Filler is a heavy-duty filler that repairs damaged or rotted wood.

Q: How is Minwax® Wood Putty® different from Minwax® Stainable Wood Filler?

Minwax® Wood Putty® is designed to fill minor surface imperfections in finished wood.  It comes in ten colors to match Minwax® Wood Finish™ stains and does not harden.  Minwax® Stainable Wood Filler is designed to fill nail holes, cracks, gouges and other defects in unfinished wood.  It does not come pre-colored.  It readily accepts and Minwax® stain and, once stained, will match the surrounding wood.  Minwax® Stainable Wood Filler hardens and is strong enough to hold nails and screws.

  2. Press putty into nail holes or minor imperfections. Colors may be blended for custom matches.
  3. Wipe excess putty from surrounding area with damp cloth. Will not harden to a sandable surface.
